Baptist Care SA Inaugural Awards Recognition Program for School Students.

Baptist Care SA Inaugural Awards Recognition Program for School Students.

 

In 2019, Baptist Care SA’s programs and staff touched the lives of thousands of school students ranging in age from 6 – 18. Our Family Mental Health Support Services (FMHSS), Urban Education Options (UEO), Youth Employment and Training Services (YETS) and Adventure Camping offer a broad range of programs designed to improve students’ knowledge, skills, health and wellbeing.

 

In recognition of student achievement, each of the four programs offered an Award to partnering schools:

The Engagement Award (YETS) was offered to a student who consistently demonstrated commitment and persistence in their learning. Their positive attitude enabled them to be successful in their learning and opened up opportunities for their future as a participating member of the community.
Winner: Olivia Mill, Roma Mitchell Secondary College

 

The Compassion Award (FMHSS) was offered to a student who consistently demonstrated good inter-personal skills, the ability to work well with others and a sense of positive self-worth. Their optimistic attitude enabled them to be successful in their learning and opened up opportunities for their future as a participating member of the community.
Winners: Maretha van Hoving, Tyndale Christian School; Sithuki Kalugala-Hewage Don, Littlehampton Primary School

 

The Courage Award was offered to a student who consistently demonstrated passion and commitment in outdoor education challenges and understands the importance of being a team player, forming strong peer relationships to connect and grow.
Winner: Taylor Bone, Emmaus Christian College

 

The Pathways Award (UEO) was offered to a student who consistently demonstrated compassion and empowerment. Compassion towards those who are doing it tough, with a commitment towards helping them transition from adversity to opportunity. The students demonstrated this by a regular commitment to a particular group or cause.
Winners: Alana Gallagher, King’s Baptist Grammar School; Ella Heath, Temple Christian College

 

“It is important to celebrate and recognise an award that is focused on the character and values that are displayed by a student at school. These skills are important for our future leaders in the community,” Nicos Saredakis.
